of low-hanging fruit, right? totally voluntary thing. i mean who could be opposed to this? the nra is opposed to this. the nra is wildly opposed to this. in tucson top, anniversary of the massacre there, the nra has come outraging against the tucson gun buyback program. they're trying to stop it. an nra board member is threatening that the nra will sue to stop tucson from destroying the guns that they handed over. the guns, regardless what their owners wanted, done with them, those guns must be sold to the highest bidder and put back into circulation. the nra says the state must not destroy the weapons that people handed over specifically so the weapons could be destroyed. instead, the nra says the state has to sell them, keep them in circulation, and thereby become a gun dealer itself. when your response to the political cliche of low-hanging fruit is something so cartoonishly insensitive, so cartoonishly villainous, you then bring upon us a second political cliche. you have jumped the shark. blocking voluntary efforts by people to get rid of their own guns because they want to vo
by tuesday. that doesn't mean there's a consensus yet. listen to this from the nra after today's white house meeting. quote, we were disappointed with how little this had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the second amendment. we will not allow law-abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of madmen. i'm in favor of a nationwide ban on semiautomatic assault weapons and high volume magazines. i want to see president obama increasing federal funding for mental health treatment for all americans who need it. meanwhile, there's another school shooting today in california. a 16-year-old reportedly felt he was being bullied was accused of attempted murder. the student took direct aim and hit one classmate in taft union high school. he then aimed specifically at another classmate and then missed. kyung lah is in california with the latest. every time you hear these stories right now, a shudder comes with it because of what happened at sandy hook. what do we actually know about what happened here? >> we're learning, actually, a little more. po

on this subject. the gun lobby, the nra at least, in some ways is a victim of their own success. their political m.o. is to prevent anybody from even bringing up gun control legislation, to make it seem politically impossible to even broach the subject. and so they're not used to having the debate, their side of the argument, with powerful, motivated, organized proponents of the opposite view. in other words, they have been so successful at shutting down any possible debate over gun control in this country that they now seem legitimately surprised that there might be a legitimate debate in this country over gun control. their reaction today to their meeting with vice president joe biden in washington was that they said they were disappointed. that was their word, "dispointed," that one of the subjects of discussion was reforming gun laws. what did you think you were there to talk about? this is the list of gun owner groups and gun advocacy groups that vice president biden met with today. in this ongoing series of meetings he's having toward producing a list of recommendations that we now know will
. but the headline today is the nra's reaction or post-reaction to the meeting held with vice president joe biden. will the white house attempt to go around the nra to get legislation on the table? >>> michael and mia are keeping an eye on their inventory. they're always ready for customers who order seed bombs from their company visual lingu lingual. strong relationships with suppliers helps them maintain a balanced inventory. what can we do with a brand new year, and a room that needs refreshing? we can work with a new collection of carpet that proves durable can be softer than ever. we can get for less and spread that softness even further. turns out, we can do even more than we thought we could. because this is the year of doing. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. roll out the new year with free whole home basic carpet installation on three rooms or more. >>> coming up, details on what some call the white house's strategy to go around the nra, perhaps to get tougher gun legislation on the table. we'll have the latest on vice president joe biden's meeting going on rig
vice president biden sat down today with hunters sportsmen and gun owner's groups including the nra the real victims in all of this gun violence, as part of his fact-finding mission for the president. before the doors closed, he told reporter what's heard from gun control groups and law enforcement thus far. >> there is a surprising -- so far, a surprising recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks. not just the closed gun show loophole but total universal background checks. including private sales. there's also a good deal of talk about gun safety. and what responsibility goes along with gun ownership. i've never quite heard as much talk about the need to do something about high-capacity magazines as i've heard spontaneously from every group that we've met with so far. >> john: not every group. not the nra. after today's meeting with mr. biden, the nra released a statement that reads in part... >> john: which is something no one is trying to do at all ever. if the nra supporters in congress get in line, toughening gun laws on the federal level could be a tou
. this afternoon, biden sat down with the national rifle association, a first for the obama administration. the nra says its membership increased by more than 100,000 since the sandy hook shooting. attorney general holder is meeting with dick's sporting goods and walmart. white house is calling in heavy hitters to change public opinion including bill clinton who denounced the use of assault weapons and the administration has the strongest ally in gabby giffords, herself a victim of gun violence but the president has work cut out for him. nearly half of all americans oppose a ban or semiautomatic weapons including those in the federal assault weapons ban that expired near lay decade ago. so let's spin on all of this. i guess what this is building towards at least politically is the white house and allies want to try to isolate the nra, even on the right and within the republican party and so you have a meeting today with walmart, dick's sporting goods. they want to take, you know, groups like that, businesses like that, interests like that and sort of pit everyone, this sort of wide array against th
, riddled with bullet holes. >> conversations with nra president david keene, and connecticut senator chris murphy. then the dying art of bipartisanship with west virginia democratic senator joe manchin and former republican presidential candidate jon huntsman. plus, guns, spending and all the president's men and we do mean men, with republican congresswoman marcia blackburn, democratic congressman elijah cummings, "the new york times" jeff zeleny. and jeff scherer. i'm candy crowley. this is "state of the union." >>> a month after the massacre in newton, connecticut, the vice president is expected to present an array of gun control proposals this week. # he has publicly mentioned universal background checks on gun buyers and restrictions on high capacity magazines. the white house adds that president will also push congress for an assault weapons ban, a spokesman explained biden did not mention the controversial ban because the panel focused on consensus proposals. it appears you can count the national rifle association out of that conken sus. for starters, biden talked about his conclusio
. >> indeed. the gaming industry is the last in a series of group meetings, including the nra and other gun groups yesterday. and it's their allies who are extremely eager to blame games or anything else for violent crime. >> i think there's a very good different view as to what the problem is and how to solve it. >> if we focus on the gun, we miss the opportunity in of this country to zero in on the real problem. >> the dangers of violent video games, but they get too many friends and donors in hollywood. >> we can eliminate knives in people's homes and baseball bats and hammers and take away blunt objects of any kind. >> okay. we can save lives by taking away video games, baseball bats, and blunt objects. but not guns. even though it was a military-style ar-15 semiautomatic that claimed the lives of 20 children and 6 staff members at sandy hook elementary. a similar weapon used by the accused mass murderer james holmes who killed 12 people and wounded more than 50 others at a movie theater in aurora, colorado. it was a gun, not a baseball bat, that took the lives of more than 335,000 amer
with the representative of the nra. the nra had harsh words for the white house after that meeting saying they feel as though this administration is trying to crack down on their second am d amendment rights. after the vice president met with representatives from the video game industry, there were also some stern words and i will read you a snippet from a letter that the entertainment consumers association said, quote, we're asking you to support the public's constitutional right to have access and not to blame the media. so those are some of the backdrop against which the vice president is going to offer the recommendations on tuesday. >> before i let you go, though. who is the biggest obstacle to him becoming confirmed at least as this week is wrapped up. >> you really have obstacles on a lot of different sides, thomas. you have democrats that have criticized some of the past controversial comments and chuck hagel is a republican who are against him and lindsay graham has expressed some concern, but senator chuck schumer, a democrat might be key in getting him confirmed and he's the third ranki
huntsman and bob schrum, thank you both. >> thank you both. >> coming up, can joe biden take down the nra? big news today on how the american people feel about the nra. it's starting to feel different this time. and paul ryan gets back to that budget on the hill. by signing onto a radical antiabortion person hood bill. he's right back to the extreme. the reporter who broke the story joins us. and the birther king is back in the news. but this time, role is reversed. why is he releasing his birth certificate. you're watching po ining "polit nation" only on the place for politics, msnbc. blaeng blank. >>> have you joined the "politics nation" confers on facebook yet? we hope you will. today, our fans were reacting to the new polls showing the nra's popularity has dropped off. carol says it's about time they were taken down a few notches. julian said the nra does not truly represent gun owners. a lot of his members support common sense solutions. coming up, we'll talk about whether the white house can convince nra to support some of those comments and solutions. but, first, we want to hear w
, the president's ally, helped the nra get it passed. no surprise that there's a big dose of politics involved here. jim acosta tonight is keeping 'em honest. >> when president obama signed national health care reform into law, few in washington knew that buried in the legislation's more than 900 pages was a gift to the nation's powerful gun lobby. but here it is. a provision entitled "protection of second amendment rights." it states the government and health insurers cannot collect any information relating to the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or ammunition. the provision was such a secret, "the washington post" reports that some people in the white house didn't even know it existed, despite being in the president's signature legislation. joan alger did notice it. >> who put it in there? it might surprise you to learn it was this man, the most powerful democrat in congress, senate majority leader, harry reid. but why? a democratic source close to the passage of the health care law tells cnn, this is what was viewed as a relatively benign way to make sure the national rifle assoc
to president obama by next tuesday. right now, they're holding what could be a showdown meeting with the nra and other gun owner groups. it comes after the nra's president lashed out at president obama in a new internet radio interview. >> i think they're being disingenuous. i think they have seen this as an opportunity to go after the 2nd amendment which they have wanted to do for years. >>> also breaking, the atlantic pastor to deliver the benediction at president obama's second term inauguration is announcing to withdraw from the ceremony amid questions of an anti-gay sermon he gave in the mid-'90s. >> if you look at the counsel of the word of the god, you come quickly to the conclusion that homosexuality is not an alternate lifestyle. it is not just a sexual preference. it is not gay. but homosexuality is sin. >> the presidential inaugural committee issued a statement saying, quote, we were not aware of pastor giglio's past comments at the time of his collection and they don't reflect our desire to celebrate the strength and diversity of our country at this inaugural. before we get to vi
with politicizing and propagandizing from the nra. it goes back to money. makes me so mad they use their amendment to say look at our cause. when the president talked after that incident, he said the best resolution is to put guns in all schools. it was just furthering his cause to get money. it is for a well formed militias. at the time when this amendment was written, we had muskets. we did not have bullets that could shoot 100 bullets in the second and put it in perspective -- and not saying take away guns. is as relevantry to them as to why they have a gun, but sometimes, because of the politicization of it, we can't even have a discussion. i want people to understand everybody's view is coming from a place to help. not to take away guns. there is the extreme left in the extreme right, but the nra has taken away our chance to have a meaningful discussion in this country. >> thank you. we want to bring up what the national rifle association's president said on cnn. he said he is already rejecting the white house outline of gun- control recommendations, specifically any ban on assault weapons or
. they are looking for somebody to lead the charge against the nra. it is an effort worthy of your talents and your money. of course, mayor bloomberg does have the funds for it. in fact, while the nra spent $17 million on the 2012 election mayor bloomberg has a net worth of $22 billion. if money can, in fact, shape public opinion mayor bloomberg could bury the nra. today the mayor was evasive whether he would put his money towards the cause, but he did point to another leader who bloomberg is saying could do even more than mayor bloomberg himself can. >> well, i've got 350-- >> what are you going to do with your money? >> well, let's say it's going to be all given way. stanley mcchrystal has more credibility than i ever will have in terms of guns and the damage guns could do. >> jennifer: that's right the third leader to head the gun control general mcchrystal in afghanistan. today general mcchrystal called for much stricter gun laws. >> i spent a career carrying m-16s and it fires a 223 caliber round at 3,000 feet per second. when it hits a human body the affects are devastating. it is designed to
by tuesday. but that doesn't mean there's a consensus yet. listen to this from the nra after today's white house meeting "we were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the second amendment. we will not allow law abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of criminals and madmen." that's where the nra stands. now we'll remind you exactly where i stand on guns. i'm in favor of a nation-wide ban on military style semiautomatic assault weapons and high capacity magazines. i want to close the gun show loopholes and require private dealers to run background checks on all buyers at gun shows and see president obama for increasing mental health funding for all americans who need it. meanwhile another shooting in california. a 16-year-old who said he was bull lid attempted murder. took aim and hit one student in taft high school. he then aimed specifically at another classmate but missed. our reporter is live with the latest. kyung, every time you hear these stories break now, a shudder comes with it b
they are equally culpable. the nra has tried to convince us that video games are more dangerous than guns but study after study after study has shown that games don't have a direct impact on gun violence. the research psychologyist graham bell found that video games are not forms of violent behavior. . . . on the other hand, according to the harvard school of public health, numerous studies have found that the availability of guns directly impacts gun violence. now i can say plenty of other research but really? it's just common sense. video games while we should be discussing them they are not as much of a factor in gun violence as the ready availability of guns is. 224 years ago, america's founding fathers debated, including the bill of rights as a means to cement the birth of this great nation. they would be rolling over in their graves if they knew that legacy is now in the unworthy hands of industry lobbyists who are fighting over which special interest will get to profit most from selling their violent product. in the end it all coming down to money. joining u
in this country. ahead of today's key meeting, the nra vice president -- ahead of today's meeting with the nra, vice president biden assured the country, action is on its way. >> there's got to be some common ground here to not solve any problem, but to diminish the probability of what we've seen in these mass shootings. >> there's a real tight window to do this. i've committed to him. i could have these recommendations to him by tuesday. >> recommendations hit the president's desk in five days. now is the time to get this done. the vice president recalled the recent tragedy as the driver for change. >> in all of my years involved in munitions, there has nothing that has peeked the consciousness of the american people, there is nothing that has gone to the heart of the matter more than the visual image people have of little secure kids riddle ed riddled, with a stray bullet, but riddled. i'm not sure i can guarantee this will never happen again, but even as the pthd said, if what we do saves one life, it makes sense. >> a solution is possible. but we need action. sadly, we were reminded of tha
have to go to break, but after we come back vice president joe biden invites members of the nra and others for talks on gun violence, but does the white house need broad consensus for reform, or just the stroke of the president's pen? we will discuss options with one of the people involved in the discussions, colin goddard of the brady campaign next on "now." ...so as you can see, geico's customer satisfaction is at 97%. mmmm tasty. and cut! very good. people are always asking me how we make these geico adverts. so we're taking you behind the scenes. this coffee cup, for example, is computer animated. it's not real. geico's customer satisfaction is quite real though. this computer-animated coffee tastes dreadful. geico. 15 minutes could save you 15 % or more on car insurance. someone get me a latte will ya, please? or treat gas with these after you get it. now that's like sunblock before or sun burn cream later. oh, somebody out there's saying, now i get it! take beano before and there'll be no gas. >> i observe a gun. no one hunts with an assault rifle. no one needs ten bullets
in the heated debate of gun control legislation. within the last hour, nra confirmed it will attend the meeting at the white house with vice president biden set for tomorrow. and also today, exactly two years after she was critically wounded in a mass shooting, former congresswoman give fords is launching a new campaign for countering the gun lobby's power and money. she and her husband mark kelly write in a "usa today" op-ed, quote, americans for responsible solutions engaging millions of people about ways to reduce gun violence and funding political activity nationwide. legislators will no longer have reason to fear the gun lobby. >>> and the group mayors against illegal guns headed by new york city's mayor michael bloomberg is also out with a new ad featuring the mother of christina taylor green. she is the youngest victim killed in the tucson shooting. >> my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? to every mother, we cannot wait. >> and th
. it was the first white house meeting for the nra in nearly two decades yesterday and this morning its president told matt lauer he was not pleased about how it went. >> we have a profound disagreement with this administration. first of all on what would make a difference. we don't think a ban on so-called assault weapons which hasn't worked in the past will work this time. >> one of the major pieces the vice president appears to be focused on is not the assault weapons ban but background checks. >> there's a surprising -- so far, a surprising recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks. not just close the gun show loophole but total universal background checks, including private sales. >> and the "washington post" reports today the white house is at least considering an nra proposal to fund police in schools, that's something now being pushed by democratic senator barbara boxer. i want to bring in "washington post" columnist ruth marcus and ryan grim. good to see you both. >> good morning. >> the nra said and i'm quoting here, we were disappointed with how little this mee

as the nra and you cannot contribute? >> not at all, part of what we put in the letter to vice president biden who by the way did not blame the industry for violence i note in his remarks. as part of the letter to biden, we said that even if we are not part of the problem, we are willing to be part of the solution. we are interested in contributing to -- to reducing america's problem with violence. and some of the things that we suggest are games are powerful teaching tools and then the teaching potential of games has not been well explored at all. there are some people working in the video game field, some of our members who are working on games for conflict resolution, games for anti-bullying. there are people working on health games to help people who have to take -- who have mental problems to make sure they stay on their medication to gameify people staying, helping themselves to remain safe and to not be a danger. there are many, many things that the gaming industry wants to do to help with this problem. one issue though is that the government has been very slow to fund gaming tech

[applause] >> good evening. my name is kathy. i am for the nra. i am a recruiter for the nra as well as the california rifle and pistol association. one of the things i can see as a parent and grandparent is, we need to look into educating our young children. through the nra and crpa, we have programs to teach children about gun safety, how to handle a weapon, how to use a weapon, when to use it, and when not to use it. i think that is one of the things we can strive to do throughout the nation. not just here. children need to know how to protect themselves. i have 15 grandchildren. they all know how to use a weapon. they range from six to 21. nine boys and six girls. every one of them can shoot. the school program, the bay area, concord area, the have rifle teams. competitive rival teams. i would like to see this happen -- rifle teams. i like to see this happen throughout california and throughout the nation.
